Pres. Buhari & VP Osinbajo’s Declaration of Assets Report to be Made Public Within 100 Days

PIC.14. APC PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN RALLY IN PORT HARCOURT

President Muhammadu Buhari says his declared assets and those of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo will be released to the public after their verification by the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).

It is hoped that this process will be completed before the expiry of the 100-day deadline within which the Bureau officials said they would do it.

The Senior Special Assistant, Media and Publicity, to the President, Garba Shehu, gave the indication in a statement on behalf of the President on Saturday.

“The duly completed forms by both the President and the Vice President were submitted to the CCB on March 28, a clear day ahead of their inauguration,” the statement said.

It said the statement was to clarify some suggestions that the President and the Vice-President might not, after all, declare their assets publicly.

The statement said:

While such public display of concern is appreciated and valued, it must be said that it is a little precipitate.As required by law, the declaration and submission of documents to the CCB have been made, but there still remains the aspect of verification which the Bureau will have to conduct to authenticate the submissions made to it. In the circumstances, it is only after this verification exercise, and not before, that the declaration can be said to have been made and validated; and only after this, will the details be released to the public.

There is no question at all that the President and the Vice President are committed to public declaration of their assets within the 100 days that they pledged during the presidential campaign.

The President and the Vice President wish to thank Nigerians for their show of concern, and for the confidence they have shown in their leaders’ integrity, as evidenced by the high pedestal of uprightness and expectations on which they have placed them.

      Don’t mind them. Shebi you declare what you want people to know. They should do their jobs with the fear of God and sleep with a clear conscience. Buhari is not poor and l for one hv never believed all this his holier than thou front. Borowed 27mila to pay for his nomination form – story for the gullible.

    If I dont see that Aisha Cartier wrists on that asset then it’s balderdash!
    We have been hearing of 150 cows, bungalow,rented house,1million naira balance. You must declare where those Gucci,Chanel bags come from.

    As for Osibajo,you have been Tinubu property administrator for about a decade, lets see your largesse from Thiefnibu who owns almost all Lagos!

    The declaration is from what period to what period?
    People could start switching their properties around at the time they are running for elections and/or before assuming a political office.
    How do we measure what individuals are reporting?
    What institutions do we have?
    If Nigerians are really serious, we should start with establishment of institutions.
    Every other thing will follow.

    This is not asset declaration but nonses, how can you declare you have shares in banks without stating their value, houses and properties without value .
